Whether you are headed to Alaska or traveling to the sunny ports of Cancún, a jumpsuit is a definite must-have travel companion! Cooler weather may necessitate a longer sleeve, while warmer weather may call for a sleeveless look! Whatever makes you feel most comfortable is the way to go! Pop on a jacket or cardigan to elevate the ensemble for dinner! Accessorize with your favorite jewelry, along with some sneakers or sandals depending on the schedule of events for the day! As a petite, I understand the challenge of finding the perfect inseam, so sometimes I opt for a cropped jumpsuit like the Solene Ruffle Sleeve Jumpsuit by our in-house Muse Petite label. We also carry the perfect full-length options which would be nice for lower temps! Ask your stylist about receiving one in your next box!
Shorts & Tee
As a classic outfit of the season, you can’t go wrong with a shorts and tee combo! From basic denim to comfortable linen blends, the options are infinite! Due to their versatility, shorts can easily be paired with casual or dressier tops. If you are planning on cruising to a warm destination, try bringing along a pair of perfectly petite shorts, like our 7” Rolled to 5” Mid Rise Denim Short by 1822 Denim. The best part is you can roll them to your desired length! For those who enjoy keeping with the current trends, ask for our Maddie Tencel Woven Drawstring Shorts by Love Tree for a polished and fashion-forward look!
Lightweight Pants & Blouse
You will not regret packing a pair of pants for your cruise! If you like a wider-leg silhouette and are looking for a breathable material, try out a cotton or linen blend. Our black Helena Linen Pant by Hayes is the ultimate staple to reach for! Not too long and not too short, they can easily be dressed up or down with your favorite blouse. More tapered silhouettes, like joggers, tend to work well for those of us with shorter statures, so they are also quite nice to pack! For a beachy vibe, a floral palazzo paired with some sandals and a basic white tee would make for a chic aesthetic.
For those who prefer an athleisure look or want to wind down in style after a full day, you will definitely want to bring a lounge set! For cooler climates, a jogger/full-length pant option may be the best route for you! Find a set you can walk on deck in for a stylishly confident and comfortable look! Shorts can be easier for us petites, as hemming is not usually required. Our ivory Kamy Lounge Set Shorts and Pullover by Hayes make for the dream team. Neutral sets like this are wardrobe staples, as they match nearly anything you could imagine!
If you bring anything with you, let it be this: a dress! If it has pockets, even better! For attending a show aboard the cruise, a midi or maxi may be a great option! Our Ellie Maxi Dress by The Raconteur features the most fun print and flattering neckline–give it a go in your next curation! For a fancy dinner, how about a classic sheath or a silky slip dress with a side slit? Ask for the Felix Ribbed Racer Tank Midi Dress by Mynta which is stunning to dress up with delicate gold jewelry and nude strappy heels. Fitted to your petite proportions, you will love its versatility! More casual swing and shift dresses are ideal for excursions and days packed with activities. They pair nicely with slide sandals or fashion sneakers.
